Semester page for INF4820 - Autumn 2010

We submitted exam results to the study administration earlier today, so these will hopefully become visible for students sometime today or tomorrow. Lilja Øvrelid was the second examiner, and we were both quite impressed with the overall level of knowledge documented in the exams. The distribution of grades, accordingly, is somewhat tilted: there were two As, four Bs, 2 Cs, 1 D, and 3 Es. In case you would like to know more about how we arrived at your individual grade, I will be very open to discuss (or review) exam results with you individually; please make contact in email, if you want to get in touch for this in early January. Finally, in case you have not submitted your on-line course evaluation, please do so now. For our own benefits (and that of future student generations), we very much depend on your critical feedback. God Jul!

The model solution to our final assignment is now on-line; we will review key points of our implementation in the last laboratory session for this fall on Thursday this week (at the usual time and place). Please note that we do not provide a solution to the 'bonus material' of this problem set, i.e. question (4); accordingly, the integration of our statistical parser and PoS tagger is not directly exam-relevant. Speaking of the exam, please observe that utility materials (e.g. our text book or slides copies) are not allowed.

As of today, the remainder of problem set (2b) is (finally) available. Please note that I found a few (relatively minor) deficiencies in my pre-processing of the Penn Treebank, hence I have also provided updates to the files wsj.mrg and test.mrg in the IFI Linux universe; to get access to these updates, I recommend you delete the two files and question, log out and back in again (which should give you fresh copies of these files). The correct size of wsj.mrg should be 18243968 bytes.
